? john boehner indicated, revenue is possible, but we're not raising tax rates. where is there compromise? >> i think where there's going to be a compromise on taxes, this be would be a good thing on the economy, might exchange lower tax rates in return for a reduction in all the loopholes that as it is distort economic activity. so if boehner were able to achieve that kind of compromise, that's one that the republicans could be pleased with. the bush tax cuts are gone, they're expiring, and the president said that 250,000 below, he wants that extended, but for those making more than 250, will the bush tax cuts come to an end? >> i don't think so. i think actually the they won't come to an end because the democrats don't want major reduction in spending, if you hit the cliff, the spending would go down and politicians love to spend money. an extension of the bush tax cuts, less we're blessed by the relatively few, jeff baso, the late steve jobs, you want to remove the barriers to their production, not raise them. >> mike: john, we're not going over this cliff, are we. >> there's no way we

to recognize, look, john boehner is put on the table this notion of revenues and we think you can get that through growth. we think that you can get that through reforming the tax code. gregg: right. >> but we --. gregg: so you're telling me and the president and white house are just bluffing say, no deal on rates? >> well we've heard this. we heard he will get out of guantanamo. he would cut the deficit in half. all these sorts of things are declarations. but when it comes down to it i think the president does sign an extension because it is the smart move. look, the pathway to move forward is to reform the tax code. where there is such a high level of dissatisfaction, the opportunity is for the president to bring people together around the dissatisfaction and come up with a new, more competitive tax code. gregg: come january, here's what is going to happen. i want to put this up on the screen for our viewers. 158 million americans will be affected. after an average tax hike of $3500. that means that 88% of the households are going to be seeing their taxes go up. as you know, the cbo

of them is obamacare, as john boehner put it the other way, it's the law of the land. that means that businesses are going to be laying people off. that means that over eight million americans who are part time are going to continue to work part time until we see a real resurgence in this economy, certainly. because it's just not economical for the employer to move ahead. it's cheaper for them, in fact, to pay a $2,000 fine. imagine this, to pay $2,000 for an employee they didn't hire who they've hired and not put them on an employee-sponsored insurance plan. this is the exact reversefect of what we had, you know, been told would occur. but we should be used to that, because so much of the -- so many of the consequences have not been intended because they were never thought out by this congress, the previous congress. and we're looking at people saying it's partisanship. let me give you an example of why that's pure bull, shannon, many i fay. shannon: please do. >> one of the companies laying off people is a company called stryker, one of the medical device makers, one of the big
